The POSADA del BOSQUE ENCANTADO is a comfortable hotel in San Marcos La Laguna, a small mayan village near the shores of volcanic Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. This hotel with its beautiful gardens is a perfect destination for musicians, writers and artists, and an excellent location for small group retreats.
Its Cafe del Bosque offers both vegetarian and non vegetarian culinary delights, with an emphasis on "gourmet tipico"....traditional guatemalan dishes created and served to our guests by our excellent staff.
A campfire circle located in the midst of our coffee, avocado and citrus forest becomes the site of musical full moon gatherings or an occasional Mayan ceremony.
Our temascal, or sauna, is available for rent to guests. There is swimming on the nearby shores of Lake Atitlan, cliff diving from rocks along the hillsides and walks to mayan villages neighboring San Marcos La Laguna.
This growing community of foreigners from many countries offers a variety of alternative healing therapies, yoga, meditation, classes in massage and other healing arts, and an amazing dance studio. There are many projects which benenfit the local mayan population, and many opportunities to participate as a volunteer in different areas of interest.
